Discrimination is no longer socially acceptably for a wide range of issues: Race Sexuality Gender Religious belief Age Political belief but one area still seems to be discriminated against on a regular basis and that is mental health. If you tell a person you are disabled and you are missing a leg or something no one batters an eye lid. Tell someone you are disabled and you are fully able bodied and don't have any mental retardation they immediately think you are trying to take money off the state. I ask you this. Do you really think that mental health issues are less debilitating than any other disability? If so what do you base your opinion on? Why do you feel the way you do? Do you even know anything about mental health issues or are you just going off "gut instinct"?
